Haiti: Coping with the aftermath

In the air just hours after the 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck the impoverished island of Haiti late in the afternoon on Jan. 12, Carolyn Cole and Rick Loomis were the first of three Times photographers to make it into the capital of Port-au-Prince. They were followed several days later by Brian Vander Brug.

The quake has killed more than 200,000 people, said Haitian President Rene Preval, and may leave an estimated 1.2 million homeless.

Cole, Loomis and Vander Brug’s photo report portrays scenes of chaos, death and destruction as aftershocks continued for days to roil Port-au-Prince, which was near the epicenter of the quake.
